Your float is likely sticking open, or more likey has a pinhole leak and is now full of fuel. The float isn't able to rise to level of fuel in the bowl and allow the needle to sit into the seat. The seat could also be damaged / have debris on it. First thing to do is remove the carburetor to check for debris and such in the bowl. Then check float, needle, and seat. Since you have the carburetor off anyways, put a rebuild kit in it.

Wont stay running just dies out when you give it gas


it is a problem with either or both the fuel mixture coming out of the carby or poor quality fuel. use premium 95 octane to help it and you might need to adjust the screws on the carby to generate a better fuel air mix

Got a honda 5hp 4 stroke engine on a generator wont run with air filter on runs perfect without can you help


Check to make sure the filter isn't plugged. If it is good, look below the filter and see if it touches or interferes with the governor spring or the governor rod on the carbueratior linkage. Thos are anout the only situations where an air filter would keep an engiine from running. Marvin.

Wont stay running


the problems is in the carburetor, common problems when unit does not run often and rust get get build up. get some automotive carburetor cleaners and spray it heavy in the carb, don't worried about flooding it or damaging anything, it will dry out faster than gas. (use little gas if you need to) try to start it up and get it running with the carb cover off and continue to spray carb cleaner in the carb while the engine is running, do this couple of time and hope that would clear it out. if that don't work you will need to take it apart and clean it. you have small tiny object obstructing the carb flow. the unit doesn't have a fuel pump, it run on gravity feed, the carb are easily obstructed. hope that help a bit

Starts but wont stay running


Check your gas filter. When you ran out of gas, you got any rust in your lines and filters. Change the inline filter and use an air compressor and blow the line TOWARDS THE TANK. Take the gas cap off first. There is also a filter in your tank.By blowing the line you may unstop that filter.

Generator is burning oil and choking out


You have/had too much oil in it. After it is brought down to proper level, it may have to burn the oil that is in areas that it should not be in. Another thing that may cause this, is a dirty air filter, can cause enough suction to pull oil around valves, and other places a clean filter will not. It may have oil in the filter too.
